Earlier today, Irish blues and rock guitarist and vocalist Gary Moore was found dead in his hotel room in Spain. His inspiring, emotional playing style made him into one of rock's guitar gods and his influence can be heard in all kinds of blues, rock and metal music. He was known for participating in several projects and bands such as Skid Row (the Irish band in the 70s) and Thin Lizzy, as well as for his own, highly successful solo career. Thin Lizzy guitarist Eric Bell: "I still can't believe it, he was so robust, he wasn't a rock casualty, he was a healthy guy."

So far, no information about the actual reason for the death has been reported. We will keep you updated. In the meantime, here is Gary performing his biggest hit "Still Got The Blues":

First time I saw him was over thirty years ago, when I was still at school, on his "G-Force" tour. The last time was 2009, on his "Bad For You Baby" tour.
One of the most versatile guitarists, everything from the jazz-fusion of his "Colosseum II" days, the blues-rock of his solo career, to the face melting heavy metal solos which he was so capable off.
RIP


nice to see someone appreciating his Colosseum II days

The last 2 or so years, seem so awkward and sad... It kinda started with Mika Tenkula, a guy who I knew from my city died in fire accident, he was a singer in thrash metal band, then we had last year with Dio, Peter Steele, and all the others, and now it seems to go on with Gary Moore ... So please make it stop.

Offical now 2011 sucks worse than 2010, when the fuck will this stop? RIP


I'm afraid that every next year will be worse than the last. Our gods are not getting younger :\



Sad but true


Really, its all downhill from here. Ozzy, Halford, there all pretty old guys now, I just wish it wouldnt happen, even though I know it will.
